Ordinary Residency Applications

The Ordinary Residence 

The Maltese Ordinary Residence  is an attractive residence  currently available to EU nationals seeking to transfer their tax residence to a safe, high quality and tax-efficient jurisdiction such as Malta. Persons with a stable financial position and who purchase or lease a residence in Malta may take up residency as ordinary residents of Malta.  Ordinary residents may live and enter into any business or employment in Malta.  Residents of Malta under the ordinary residency and who are not domiciled in Malta are taxable on a remittance basis.  Accordingly, ordinary residents are not taxable on foreign source income not received in Malta and also not taxable on any capital gains arising outside Malta, whether remitted to Malta or otherwise.  Ordinary residence is suitable for persons seeking to take up residence in Malta and physically live in Malta, with the possibility of taking up employment or conducting a business activity in Malta.
